Why Private Cybersecurity Training Matters for Your Organization
Today’s security environment is dynamic. New threats, new vectors of attack, and new compliance standards challenge cybersecurity teams on a day to day basis. The default position for a security team is outside its comfort zone. Threats evolve, and your security team needs to learn and adapt proactively to stay sharp. A great way to do this is to upskill your team through certification-oriented cybersecurity training programs.
But what is the best way to deliver training? Pre-recorded sessions are cheap to obtain but lack interactivity. On the other hand, external training and workshops can grow prohibitively expensive over time.
What’s the solution, then? Alpine’s on-premise private cybersecurity boot camp gives you the best of both worlds by rationalizing costs and offering an interactive, two-way learning experience. There are a number of reasons why private cybersecurity training might be a good fit for your organization. Let’s take a look:
1. A live, interactive experience
Alpine’s cybersecurity training is in-person and instructor-led. Two-way interaction is critical to learning and something that’s simply not possible with pre-recorded training sessions. A training video can’t adapt to the audience or answer questions during the training session.
When it comes to hands-on practical training, a live instructor is of much more value to learners than a recorded video. The interactive training format also means that Alpine training sessions are a great opportunity for bonding and team-building on-premises.
2. Tailor coursework to address the challenges your organization faces
Because Alpine’s cybersecurity training is private, training sessions are exclusive to your organization. A major drawback of public workshops and training sessions is that examples and use cases often have to be generalized. The specific challenges your organization and your security team face are likely to be very different from those another organization faces.
Exclusivity means that Alpine’s trainers can tailor certification courses to address your team’s specific challenges. By tackling problem areas in hands-on sessions, Alpine’s cybersecurity training augments your team’s real-world, functional expertise in the areas that matter most to them.
3. Rationalize costs and enhance convenience
Workshops and external training have their place. They’re valuable opportunities for team-building, networking, and exposure. However, costs can add up especially if you have a larger cybersecurity team in place:. Flying your entire security team to the other side of the country for a cybersecurity boot camp isn’t a cheap proposition.
Alpine’s training instructors offer training at your premises. This drastically reduces travel costs: only one person needs to travel, instead of the entire class. Over time and across multiple training sessions, your organization will save a substantial amount on travel expenses alone.
Because Alpine offers on-premise live certification training, the training experience is substantially more convenient, both for management and the security team. There’s no need to disrupt work schedules or plan training travel around convenient dates.
Cybersecurity certification training is no longer optional. Your security team needs the best training to be certification-ready. Certifications like the CISSP, CEH, and Security+ demonstrate an ability to address the cyber threats your organization faces today.
Alpine’s certification-oriented Security+, CEH, and CISSP training and boot camps give your team a live, immersive training experience without having to leave the office.
